Kanazawa (Hokuriku Area)

From the sheer cliffs and diversified rocks along the picturesque coastline seen from Wakasa Bay, Echizen-misaki Point, Tojinbo and Noto-hanto Peninsula, to the mountainous scenery including the World Cultural Heritage Shirakawa-go Village and Kurobe Gorge, the Hokuriku region offers some of the most spectacular scenery in Japan. The Samurai culture of the Edo Period (1603-1867) flourished in Kanazawa which became a "Little Kyoto". It is a home to artistic craft products that rival those of Kyoto for their beauty and refinement, and is also known for some of Japan's most famous Zen temples. Kanazawa also is home to one of the top 3 Japanese Gardens (Kenrokuen), along with several ceramic brands and this city boasts the highest production of Gold Flake leaves. Being on the Sea Of Japan Coast, seafood in this area, especially Crab is very popular with Japanese tourists, so when in Hokuriku area, please do as the Japanese do.

The Cherry Blossom season was late so we also unexpectedly got to enjoy the benefits without the crowds.... READ MORE
